I have shared my thoughts on some values, qualities, feelings and situations in life.
I have seen humans walking past a hungry dog without a trace of concern on their face. Why such a cold attitude? Humans have a blessing to think and act. Buy a container and a pack of milk or biscuits and feed the dog.
( Though the natural foods for dog is meat ) . These things are available in our surroundings, most of the time. If you are sure to come across one, carry it with you.
I am saying this by experience. It brought a smile on my face after the tiring work hours. Its an easy task, isn’t it? It takes less than a minute to feed a soul. So why not do it next time you see one. When we are blessed with the privelege of eating what we want, when we want, let us make a hungry voiceless animal happy by feeding him, next time we come across one. Hunger is a feeling which drives a living soul crazy and helpless. read the last sentence again.
A rare one in today’s generation. As a teacher I have come in contact with hundreds of kids. The ones I am meeting since last four to five years are very cold and practical. The mere reason being lack of empathy. Trying to feel what the other person is feeling is difficult, not impossible. Parents have two options, along with delivering the duties of earning money, be aware of how your child is growing up. Or else focus on the business of earning only money, ignoring the conditions in which your child is growing up. People choose the latter as its convenient. Some even have the guts of declaring that the child will learn from trial and error method. What if the error damages a part of his personality for the lifetime?
Then comes the next safer escape. ‘It was meant to be like that’. ‘It was destined.’
Making a child empathetic is as easy as stirring a curry in kitchen or signing papers in office. The only thing needed here is a little patience and will. But finding that will itself is missing in today’s parents. They are scared to make their children empathetic. The fear that the child might not be able to face this tough competitive world, with an empathetic heart is one of the reasons of an empathy free upbringing.
Moulding a child into an empathetic human is completely a choice of the parents. The question is why are they not doing it?
I have shared my thoughts here truly from the heart. Will see you soon with another bouquet of values. Give it a try for sure. It will leave a fragrance of goodness in your heart and imprints of the blessings of the less fortunates on your soul.
